Bottle in a trade with MarkoNm, cheers. Pours dark brown with a fairly short lasting moderate sized beige head. Aroma of sweet milk chocolate, roasted malt, peanut brittle, and dark fruit. Medium sweetness, and moderate but increasing bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is sweet and oily.

Not a great dark beer, but not a bad dark beer either. It’s good enough to drink all night long. Taste is fresh seeing that at it’s source. GriZZZly (215) - - JAN 27, 2017
Ar: Słodowosc, minimalna nutka palonosci i karmelu, niska intensywnosc, przyjemny, subtelny, ale zbyt slaby, jeczmienna slodowosc, zytni chleb. Pachnie dobrym lagerem, ale generalnie nuda.
Wyg: Czarnawo-rubionowe, piany prawie brak - cienki ring na styku ze szklem, ultradrobnoziarnista.
Sm: Dosc wysoko wysycone, plytkie, lekko wodniste, lekkie, bardzo pijalne, slodowa slodycz, wyrazna nuta karmelu, poza ta slodowa karmelowa slodycza i chlebowymi nutami w zasadzie nic tu nie ma. Przyjemnie sie pije, zwlaszcza jak na lagera, ale troche za slodko i pustawo tutaj. Szkoda.
Pos: Karmelowosc slodowa, slodkosc, jakby lekko krowka. Palona goryczka minimalna, na pograniczu autosugestii.
Dobre, ale strasznie nudne. Gangstergafje (1142) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2017
The beer has a dark copper color. A reddish glow can still be seen, but it is almost black. The beer is quite clear. A rather small, greyish layer of foam is formed on top of the beer. The rough foam collapses quick and leaves next to nothing.
The smell of the beer is quite good. It is a tiny bit mild though. I smell some rich malt tones, giving the smell some sweetness. There is also a rich toasty and slightly caramel aroma. Roasted malt aroma’s are not that present. Some hoppy notes accompany the malt aroma. There are some aromas of stone fruit, dark red cherries and plums. Not that strong though. The smell might have been a bit stronger overall.
The taste of the beer is nice. It is not very complex, but just good. There is a nice maltiness, which is clearly present. The malt flavour is very pure, and not sweet. It is just really malty. There are slight toasty flavours to. Hops are barely present. This is one of the maltiest beers I’ve had, but I like it. It isn’t out of balance.
The palate is average. Not special, not bad. The body is medium, maybe even medium light. The texture is a little thin, but soft. Carbonation is low. The finish is rather short, but good. There are nice malts there. Good beer.
